Info: Great Dixter, home/gardens of Christopher Lloyd, Sir Edwin Lutyens architecture, photos.

Great Dixter in Northiam was built circa1450 and is the birth place of the late Christopher Lloyd, gardening author.

Great Dixter has featured in many books and articles written by former owner Christopher Lloyd, and since his death still features regularly in newspapers and magazine articles and on TV as one of the greatest gardens in the Country.

The Great Hall is the largest medieval timber framed hall in the Country. The house was largely designed by the architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens who added a 16th century Yeoman's Hall moved from nearby Benenden. The gardens feature a variety of topiary, wild meadows, peacock garden and the famous Long Border and Exotic Garden. Whether you visit in April to see the spring colours, June for the summer colours, or October for the vibrant autumn colours there is always plenty to see within the walls of Great Dixter.

Christopher contributed regularly to "Country Life" magazine from 1963, with a series of weekly articles on practical gardening (he never missed an issue in 42 years). There is a specialist nursery on site which offers an array of unusual plants.

Light refreshments are available in the gift shop as well as tools, books and gifts.
